Low power consumption 150mA voltage regulators
A new series of voltage regulators has been launched by Torex Semiconductor, with the XD6216 series. The XD6216 series are positive voltage regulator ICs with 28V of operation voltage. The series consists of a voltage reference, an error amplifier, a current limiter, a thermal shutdown circuit and a phase compensation circuit plus a driver transistor.
The output voltage is selectable in 0.1V increments within the range of 1.8 to 12V using laser trimming technologies. The output stabilisation capacitor (CL) is also compatible with low ESR ceramic capacitors.
The over current protection circuit and the thermal shutdown circuit are built-in. These two protection circuits will operate when the output current reaches current limit level or the junction temperature reaches temperature limit level.
The CE function enables output to be turned off and the IC becomes a stand-by mode resulting in greatly reduced power consumption. These environmentally-friendly products comply with the EU RoHS Directive and are lead-free.
